This is a seated figure of a man called Nefer-tem-hotpe, with two women on each side of him.
It is from the Temple of Meren-ptah at Memphis.
A block statue shows the subject squatting, perhaps to represent a gatekeeper sat in the gateway of a temple. The Egyptians made them as an offering, though often they made them for a burial. This one was made for a man as an offering. Either side of him stand two women, who may be his wives, his wife and daughters, or his mother, wife and daughters. The hieroglyphs on the front name only the man, and we know nothing more about him. The inscription reads ‘The revered one before Ptah-Sokar, Nefer-tem-hotpe’.
